Swoon Thursday (58)


Hosted by YA Bound

The Rules of Swoon Thursday:
"From the book you are currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON.  What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.  Try to make the Swoon 140 characters so you can tweet it.  Add the #YABOUND hashtag when you tweet."

Goodreads Summary:

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

My Swoon:

"I'm in love with you," he said quietly. 

"Augustus," I said.

"I am," he said.  He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling.

"I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things."

"I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you." 


~Augustus Waters
